1602: Golden Hour

"Get on your feet, dear." he said The Sun's about to rise again from behind the bay. The rain is frozen in place. A mirrorball shatters into a star mist Reflecting each beam of what's left of summer Gleaming feast of crystal chimes And the dance with the dead roses "Inhabit these steps and undo the pirouette." In a secret language I'll confess Though I'm stressing on the chance That you've already taken a guess What's it like to breathe life into certain feelings Or transform sentiments into gestures The secret language dares me to address Golden laurels At sunrise we'll know what to face. "Wear a mask. Risk a crumb of honey wafers." My soul surrenders to the first note Of the ballad reeling in the shards of hate Anguish Will we march as the music plays? I'm on my feet, kind gentleman. Clouds waltz to the song of the Wind Prism shattering, time refuses to heal And you're left without your shadow in the rain The Sun persists to oversee your mending Even after the music has ceased to play "Get on your feet, dear." he said Dance with the dead roses Frozen in a mirror A gleaming feast behind the mist #1602: GOLDEN HOUR ©Jake Ponce [June 12, 2012, 3:19am]
